I have in the past. Would everyone be OK if I made another one? *Pushes the people who aren't to the side*

I second that suggestion!

I mean the attempt was made to such, but for some reason (that I plead the fifth on) it died out. Meanwhile about the new gen of pokemon not being in, the people who update the site also have lives outside of it, meaning you may have to wait a while before that happens. However, if all you're looking for is someone to call you an idiot for naming a pokemon something, I am always happy do that.

It's not so much we have lives outside of it, though we are all busy, but it's also a matter of motivation. The forum does seem dead, and I'm honestly too exhausted (and I have a million other hobbies I want to pursue outside of my work) to really do much with it, on top of being afraid to really do anything with site UI. There's a million other Pokemon sites with raw information.

However, just to avoid being a downer and seeing what can get done, I will make a thread this weekend about activity and what you can do to help. We can definitely add the new generation of Pokemon easily, but getting someone to rate them will be difficult.

That last statement is a bit of a fallacy. Anyone can rate them. Getting someone decent to rate them is the tricky part.

It's not. Getting someone to rate them will prove difficult -- because there's a relatively large backlog, and nobody's going to want to work on this that much.

How about this? Find a new name rater (me) delete all the nicknames waiting to be rated, solving the backlog, then people can start posting again and actually get them rated!

That wouldn't be fair to anyone who has already submitted and has been waiting for ages. Plus the backlog, based on previous experience, will fill up in a few days anyway.

I've added the new Pokemon to the database. I don't have graphics you, so those may look odd for a while.

The job is pretty exhausting and time consuming - you can't just keep repeating the same rating, it's also about being entertaining.

Well then maybe get more than one person? Even two or three would lighten the load a good deal. The trick is, of course, finding two or three witty enough people...

Yeah. I noticed a few names have been rated by someone called "the johto name rater" so we could have a name rater for each region (one for Kanto, one for Johto and so on) so we can have seven name raters!

I think I'd be a great Kanto name rater because I'm a genwunner!

That is an idea i second very much. i'm not creative enough to be one, but if there were 7 different raters, things would go much more quickly.

Make me the Kanto name rater! Make me the Kanto name rater! Make me the Kanto! I can dream, can't I?

So who should be the other regional name raters?
Who is Sentret? I've seen him rate a couple of nicknames!

I think Sentret is dead. The Ask Sentret section hasn't been updated for over six years now.

Sentret hasn't been active since about 2011. Meaning updating the Ask Sentret section of the site and answering questions. The site's Name Rater must have followed through with his plan to get rid of Sentret.
